Michael Dawkins Sterling Silver Faceted Mother-of-Pearl Oval Ring
Faceting needs help
The ring is pretty, but the faceting cuts too deep into the ring. My skin showed through the stone.
Poor Stone -- Returned
I like many of Michael Dawkins pieces but not this one. I have Dawkins MOP enhancers and the stones don't look like this one. Once I opened it I knew immediately it would be going back.
First Dawkins piece and I'm impressed!
I bought this when it was on the lunchtime special "menu". I was skeptical after reading a couple of reviews about how big it is. But, I ordered it anyway. And I am so glad I did! I ordered the size 5 and I wear it on my middle finger on my right hand. I am 39, 5'3" and 90 pounds. This ring is perfect -- the color, the size, the sterling is substantial. Mother of pearl is supposed to have all variations in color.
This is my first Michael Dawkins piece and it may not be my last. It looks great with my Judith Ripka pieces.
This is a very beautiful ring! Hard to believe the price for so much silver and mother-of-pearl. It does seem to run a tiny bit small but that keeps it in place. There is just 'something' about white that is so pretty.
I do not like large jewelry. However, I purchased this ring after reading a review by someone
who also said she did not like large jewelry, but did like this ring. It was a big mistake to
go by that review. This ring is huge! It is definitely being returned asap!
I would have given this 5 stars but I feel that the stone has the pearlized look more on one side on the stone. I am not sure if it is suppose to be like this or not. However, it still is very pretty and there is quite a bit of sterling silver in the band. I purchased when it was on a lunchtime special so it was a very excellent price. It's not as large as I thought it would be which is good because I prefer medium sized rings. You won't be disappointed if you purchase this ring. Michael never disappoints.
This is just an adorable ring. I have rather small fingers ordered a size 5 and it still was a bit big, I hope MD could make some in the future size 4. This is my 3rd MD ring purchase and as soon as I saw this and with the easy pay offer I didn't hesitate to order. I love the color of the MOP and how comfortable it is, not overbearing but definitely a statement piece. Luv it, a keeper!
Gorgeous! I ordered the wrong size :(
I've had my eye on this for awhile, and when it went on clearance with easy pay, it was a no-brainer! I am glad to say that Micheal Dawkins doesn't disappoint! This is just what I was looking for in a Mother-of-Pearl ring!! The silver is weighty (in a good way) and "pinched" in at the top near the stone to add architectural detail. The MOP is faceted and beautiful. Unfortunately, I ordered this for my index finger, and find that I like it much better on my ring finger. It is a substantial ring, but not over-powering, and looks better on my ring finger. I cannot reorder in the correct size, as they are all sold out. Some lucky person will be getting this one!
I Love it too!
I have a number of rings, but this one is always noticed. I have gotten soooo many compliments on it. It is a large ring which normally do not look good on my small fingers. However, this one is awesome. Ordering another one for a friend.
STONE LOST SOMEWHERE IN IRELAND
I wore this ring to Ireland, in early October. Noticed the stone gone on day two. Sending it back today. Such a shame too, it was really comfortable.
I just got this ring and all I can say is is I JUST LOVE IT.
I read the reviews and if the stone falls out I just hope I find it because i will glue it back in and keep it forever.
Stone Fell Out
The first time I wore this lovely ring, the stone fell out. I was at church and had had it on for less that an hour. That did allow me to see the way it was put together. Poor workmanship. It was just glued in. I expect more from Michael Dawkins. I loved the ring. Makes me sad. It was too expensive for the quality of workmanship.
